A Minneapolis woman with a history of domestic assault convictions has been charged with assaulting a Richfield woman.
Ayia Avarahchyskiadarell Parker, 24, is charged with felony domestic assault, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Richfield police were called to a home just before 6:30 p.m. Dec. 5 to investigate a domestic assault, according to the criminal complaint.
Police found Parker outside the house, wearing only a bra and jeans. They spoke to the victim, who was inside with her two 14-year-old sons.
The victim, who was “extremely upset and hysterical,” had a difficult time giving a statement to police because she was so fearful of Parker, according to the complaint.
The victim’s sons told police that they woke up that morning and found Parker on top of their mother, beating her. They pulled Parker off the victim, they said.
The victim told police that Parker, with whom she said she had a relationship more than a year ago, had shown up at her home in late November and had begun harassing her, refusing to leave and monitoring her activity. She said Parker’s anger had escalated over the last three days.
Parker was convicted in 2011 of domestic assault and last January of violating a domestic assault no-contact order.
She remains in the Hennepin County Jail on a $40,000 bond and on three outstanding domestic assault-related warrants. An omnibus hearing in her case is scheduled Jan. 2 in Hennepin County District Court.
